[Tutorial] : Rotate your Galaxy Note 2 with ChainFire

Long before the Galaxy Note 2 was released, we offered you an exclusive, first-of-its-kind method for rotating the terminal. But now we’re going back to more traditional methods by offering you another way to rotate your Galaxy Note 2, thanks to ChainFire.

For those newbies who don’t necessarily understand the benefits of rotate your smartphone, here’s a brief explanation. Rooting your device will give you access to new options and permissions that may be required for some applications. But it also gives you additional options, such as access to backups of the system and your data.

Now let’s put this into practice by rootning our Galaxy Note 2. This is very simple and will only take a few minutes.

But before you start the procedure, and as for the flash, you should know that we decline any responsibility in case of brick or loss of data from your phone. Even if the operation is simple and extremely rare, there is no such thing as zero risk. It should also be borne in mind that the rooting of the phone is a reason for voiding the warranty (even if few cases have been found in practice).

Start by downloading the CF-root file (available here) necessary for our operation. Once the file is on your computer, unzip it. You will then get a .tar file.

Then click on the PDA button, and select the CF-root file you have just downloaded in .tar format.

Turn off your phone and switch it to download mode. To do this, press the Volume Down, Home and Power buttons simultaneously. Confirm by pressing Volume Up.

Now, and only now, you can connect your Galaxy Note 2 to your computer with the USB cable.

Make sure that the re-partition box is unchecked and that F-Reset Time and Auto-Reboot are checked. When the ID:COM box in the top left corner turns yellow, you can press the Start button.

Do not touch anything and let the phone “work”. This may take a few minutes. At the end of the operation, your Galaxy Note 2 will restart by itself.

Your Galaxy Note 2 is now rooted, giving you new possibilities, and it took you less than 10 minutes.
